We played the British at Bobby Jones Golf Complex. Bobby Jones is Bobby Jones. If you live close, like Chris, this course is almost perfect for those early morning or late day rounds. Its pretty wide open, but maintained pretty well and even with a foursome, you can get around the track quickly. This isn’t the best Florida golf has to offer, but its a nice course and I’d play it again for sure.
I wanted to experience Chris’ first tee time Bobby Jones experience, but unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate. We got to the course before 7a, but ended up on a frost delay for two hours. This was the first 18 of 36 we had planned.
I might’ve come into the day with high expectations. Chris has been shooting upper 80s here and talked about how I should tear this course up, maybe even shooting 70s. I might’ve let that, plus the frost delay and being concerned about making our River Strand tee time, affect how I played. I had a great time, but wasn’t playing my best.
There were bright spots, like hitting a 3H about 220 into the 14th green giving myself a real good look at eagle. But I couldn’t putt, parred that one. I had some solid irons and some good drives, but I was definitely off my game.
Even so, it was a fun round.
I'm the Vice President of Digital Innovation and Mobile, which is probably the coolest job title out there. You can learn more about my work in emerging technology on the About or Work Pages.
As for this site, it's a place where I can jot ideas down and share some of the stuff I'm working on. The views are my own and some of them might not make much sense, but hey, that's part of the process. I'm also working toward being a single digit handicap golfer, so I post a lot about my golf game.
